Projections: 'Insurgent' Looking for 3rd Week on Top24 Aug, 2015 By: John Latchem
Lionsgate's Insurgent will try to take advantage of another week of limited new releases of theatricals to disc to mark a third straight week on top the week ended Aug. 23.
The new title with the best chance of debuting with a high chart spot is Disney's Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection, which includes a follow-up to Frozen. The biggest barrier to the title claiming the top spot could be some Walmarts not giving it a prominent placement in their new-release display.
The biggest titles for the week are TV titles on disc, including the second season of Sony Pictures' "The Blacklist" and the fourth season of Disney's "Once Upon a Time." Also new is Warner's Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem.
On the rental chart for the week, Warner's Hot Pursuit arrived at Redbox kiosks three weeks early and should move into the top spot.
